Here is an argument i may have missed somewhere along the line?
Many major large corporations do NOT allow their employees to sync to their exchange servers by anything other than a blackberry. That being said, individuals who choose to have a more robust device, utilize synch'g locally to their Outlook Contacts/Cal etc in order that they can atleast have their contacts & Cal data on their device.
Pre says "Sync with Exchange". Well, for many companies u cant do that.
Pre says "Sync via Google & Exchange". Well, having all of your work meetings, access #s, etc from meeting notices, & proprietary info, out on google web isn't an option, from a security standpoint.
The Pre is supposed to be the "work & play" phone, combining both worlds.
I'm trying to determine, where is the logic in not allowing a bluetooth sync capability from PRE to Local PC for Outlook data? Does it hurt anyone to have it? No I dont think so.
So... for us individuals who cannot sync to corporate exchange servers, and cannot place corporate data on google, i can't see why we can't be offered another choice that seemingly wouldn't negatively affect the device in any way.
If not at launch, then post launch: "Bluetooth sync to PRE from local Outlook is COMING SOON." Either by some 3rd party vendor or Palm. Would it hurt to gain more users by having this option? They certainly wouldn't lose any by having it.
my 2cents wishing for a solution.
